Breaking News!

It was revealed yesterday that Manchester United and England footballer Wayne Rooney has confessed to having had a hair transplant.

Now, call me an old-fashioned prude if you will, but how is that news?

I mean, at the same time as Rooney’s “revelation”, there were still six wars or revolutions going on in the Middle East, the Fukushima nuclear power plant was still melting down, Germany’s canning its nuclear industry as a result, Sepp Blatter’s corrupt presidency of F.I.F.A. got “re-elected” for another four years and Gen. Mladic’s trial at the Hague got underway.

And yet, it’s Wayne Rooney’s hair-do that seems to have caught the public imagination as opposed to this story, which is about S.I.S. (or M.I. 6 as it’s more erroneously known) doing a brilliant piece of trolling on al-Qaeda.

Now was this reported on the BBC news? Channel 4? Sky? No, not that I saw anyway.

I found out about it when it made the front page of Pundit Kitchen, a subset of the Cheezburger website. It turns out that the original story broke in the online Daily Telegraph.

As much as it pains me, I’m afraid we’re going to have to chalk this up as a win for the Minions.
